Euston is one of London's busiest stations. Built as the London terminus of the London & Birmingham Railway in July 1837, Euston was London's first intercity railway station.
What's inside 'Euston Station Through Time'
Originally designed by Philip Hardwick, the station entrance was through the world's largest Doric propylaeum, which became known as the Euston Arch. In the 1840s the station was expanded greatly and by 1923 express trains left Euston regularly for Wales, Scotland and the major cities of England, including Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.
In the early 1960s the original station was demolished, to a huge outcry, and a new modernist structure replaced it. Join John Christopher on a journey through time, telling the story of Euston from 1837 to the present day area.
